The Living Art Park Cultural Association, co-ordinated by the artist Piero Gilardi, has been active since 2002. It brings together different professional experiences in a hybridisation of languages and scientific and technical know-how, directed at experimentation in the field of art and nature.
The Modern Art Gallery of Torino, Italy, will explore issues of Programming land and urbanism, Ecology and techno-art. The conference "From Land Art to Bioart" takes place on Saturday 20 January.
For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.
We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
